Art Gallery Guest House - Thandekayo
Ranked #17 of 59 Hout Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 September 2010

From our initial late night welcome and before, we received nothing but the best and most friendly and attentive service from Martin and Anita and from Banda and Jeanette. We were certainly made to feel part of Thandekayo family. Our rooms were luxurious, clean and well maintained and the breakfasts were excellent. It's great to be able to choose what you want and have it freshly prepared. All other amenities were first class and the view from the balcony was occasionally breathtaking.
Hout Bay is an excellent base for a first holiday in and around Cape Town, even in the winter, and is within easy reach of some of the world's most stunning scenery and attractions. Eating out was first class and excellent value. This was our first visit and, I hope, it won't be our last.

I initially booked this guesthouse for myself and my girlfriend for just the two days but in the end stayed for four due to so many reasons. The value for money was superb, the room was beautiful and the view across the mountains even better. Martin and Anita (the owners) were so welcoming, friendly and helpful with everything from helping to organise trips to giving their local knowledge on things to do. However, they did so in a non obtrusive manner so we never felt like there was pressure/presence on us. The breakfasts were delicious and Banda and Janet (the staff) were terrific. If you are staying in the area or even in Cape Town (it's a stunning 20 minute drive up the coast and with your own car it's so easy to navigate round) then this has to be on your list of places to stay. It won't disappoint.

Service was excellent, we were greeted on arrival and our bags taken to our rooms whilst we were shown around this beautiful house. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and we were encouraged to treat the place as home from home. Our room was contemporary in design and very clean, overlooking the outdoor pool area. The lounge/dining area is decorated with stunning art photographs and the large balcony was the perfect place to sit out with a glass of wine and look at the amazing views.
This gallery hotel is convieniently situated just 15 mins drive from Cape Town and 5 mins from the coast of Hoot Bay.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting South Africa if you want a quiet place to relax.

This is a very interesting property. Nice house with awesome decoration art work.

The rooms are great: very spacious and full with amenities (e.g. Shower and bath tub).

The breakfast was great the owner was very acomodating to to put a second bed in the room as I sharing with a friend and our original room had only a double bad.

Only be aware that although Hout is super nice it is actualy quite far from Cape Town itself.

great location for exploring the cape; a little far late at night from Cape Town although roads are absolutely fine. Service was excellent and the morning views of Chapman's Peak etc from breakfast and the verandah were great. Good layout and the whole place was crisp and well maintained.

The staff was very friendly and the owner were very nice people, making us feel welcome.

The room was very confortable and the amenities very nice.

My only dislike was the absence of blinds in the room, but that's a personal preference.
